Ropacus UFZ B 408 is able to use pyridine, a potentially growth-inhibiting substrate, as the sole source of carbon, energy and nitrogen. In a previous publication [l] we reported that with the simultaneous utilization of a second carbon and energy source in carbon-substrate-limited chemostat culture, stable steady states could be achieved at higher dilution rates than with growth on pyridine as the sole substrate. Owing to the higher growth yield during growth on such a substrate mixture, both the specific p…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
